Diamond Rings, Charlie Deets 

When: Wed., Dec. 1, 9:30 p.m. 2010
Price: $8
There's only so much multicolored eye makeup a musician can airbrush on his face before people start assuming that he's probably only good at wearing eye makeup. John O'Regan, who performs as Diamond Rings and dresses like a combination of Boy George and a teenage girl into hip-hop, sometimes wears a lot more makeup than that, but it's only skin deep. He's no lightweight electro diva, though his latest album, Special Affections (Secret City), relies heavily on synthesizers and drum machines—he uses them to build impressively sophisticated pop songs that often carry a current of melancholy beneath their glossy sheen. Charlie Deets opens. —Miles Raymer
